[audio]Scott Lawlor- Complex Silence 36 [treetrunk 272] - Scott Lawlor
"Another rising star in the netlabel ambient world makes a debut with Complex Silence 36. While it is definitely true that Scott Lawlor is still searching for his musical voice, sometimes hearing a fresh voice serves as creative inspiration for us all." "Here we have Lawlor exploring the longform ambient track, stretching his musical legs so to speak for 50+ minutes. The result is a wonderful low-volume excursion through beautiful harmonies, washes of rich ambient color, and a tapestry of quiet ...

[audio]Ran Kirlian- Complex Silence 38 [treetrunk 278] - Ran Kirlian
Welcome to Complex Silence 38.If your August is feeling hot and sticky, then prepare yourself for a cool and refreshing ambient rain shower as only ambient master Ran Kirlian can conjure up.Or, draw yourself a bath, light some candles, and perhaps snuggle up with a significant other and soak into this floating, drifting, comforting cocoon of sound.In any of these scenarios (or whatever escape you choose to lose yourself in), Ran's music is equally able to provide a soothing balm--a spacey and wo...

[audio]Mysterybear- Complex Silence 12 [treetrunk 133] - Mysterybear
The Complex Silence series is indeed fortunate to once again host a release by Dave Seidel, aka mysterybear. What's in store for us with this fresh release are two tracks of Dave's signature drones, utterly beautiful in their mathematical perfection and grandeur. There's an added layer in these tracks as well, and we'll let mysterybear explain: "These pieces both employ the technique of binaural beating, and are thus most effective if you listen with headphones...

[audio]LAJ- Complex Silence 35 [treetrunk 267] - LAJ
For listeners who enjoy the patient rewards of longform drones, Larry Johnson (known widely and affectionately in netlabel circles as LAJ) offers up a slowly evolving universe of subtle harmonies for Complex Silence 35.An opening deep-end thrum provides a gently rocking motion that eventually gives way to an extended stream of stretched out middle harmonies. These tones evoke the sense of a cosmic chorus presiding over some gloriously unfolding celestial event...

[audio]Mister Vapor- Complex Silence 6 [treetrunk104] - Mister Vapor
"With Complex Silence 6, ambient magician Mister Vapor puts his trademark Industrial Ambient stamp upon the Series. This mesmerizing long-form work has a deeply groaning drone at its foundation, while drifting and whispering higher-toned textures render a swirling, rushing atmosphere. In the middle, the constant, unending hum of a giant generator or cosmic wheel grinds slowly but purposefully onward, sometimes hinting at an unseen darkness or mystery looming somewhere beyond...

[audio]Tange- Complex Silence 7 [treetrunk106] - Tange
The Complex Silence series is extremely proud to bring you a second adventure into the musical world of Tange! And what an adventure it is. It's not an overstatement to say that this music is simply amazing. Part 1 is laden with emotion and movement. While ominously dark, it conveys an epic sense of triumph and victory. It's comparable to the soundtrack to an incredible journey or the grand culmination of a colossal struggle...

[audio]The Ambient Visitor- Complex Silence 24 [treetrunk 220] - The Ambient Visitor
A delightful aspect of the internet is the ability to take on a different persona, an alter ego, or become that mysterious, incognito person behind the sunglasses (or the avatar). It seems that being masked and anonymous is a pastime those of a higher order intelligence particularly enjoy--just for the sheer fun of it. Of course, musicians take full advantage of this capability as well, recording under various names to suit different genres of music, or just to free themselves from an artistic m...

[audio]Digital Mass- Complex Silence 11 [treetrunk 129] - Digital Mass
Digital Mass, a mysterious ambient drone ensemble hearkening from the shores of Australia, have been regaling the internet with their many creations since 2010. This time, the Mass have crafted a massive drone, very deep, with subtle harmonics and washes of subdued noise. Reminiscent of the rocky shores of their home continent, Complex Silence 11 evokes an air of mystery. We at Treetrunk Records love a mystery-- how about you? Why not take a journey into the mists, and see where the Digital Mass...

[audio]Bing Satellites-- Complex Silence 18 [treetrunk 166] - Bing Satellites
Amazingly, with each release, the Complex Silence Series keeps evolving. The next step in the evolution is upon you now--a beautiful ambient rendition from one of the genre's newest Masters, Brin Coleman, who records as Bing Satellites. Brin writes of this piece: "This recording is an excerpt from a larger theoretical work. The music is performed on two instruments, each playing fourteen different notes on a continuous loop...

[audio]Mister Vapor- Complex Silence 10 [treetrunk 124] - Mister Vapor
"From the moment I first envisioned the Complex Silence Series, I primarily wanted other artists to participate in creating new music from a common, shared idea. I wanted to present and showcase diversity of artists and music and sounds, but within the guidelines of both musical abstraction and beauty. Now, here we are, 10 releases into the Series. The Series has presented Tange, JMMIII, Mysterybear, Mister Vapor, Fosel, and Cousin Silas...

[audio]Shane Morris-- Complex Silence 20 [treetrunk 183] - Shane Morris
The Complex Silence Series is proud to welcome and share a contribution by Shane Morris to mark the twentieth release of the Series. Shane is well-known in the ambient universe for sharing his magnificent sound worlds freely as Creative Commons releases and through live concerts. Here, Shane presents four minimal pieces that can only be described as lush and gorgeous. Bell-like sounds and electric piano predominate, but to say that is at once a contradiction...

[audio]Phillip Wilkerson with Mystified- Complex Silence 32 [treetrunk 259]
"I had created a couple of long form pieces specifically for this release and was letting them incubate. At about the same time, Thomas Park had been mixing my Drone Artifacts into a couple of his recent (and highly recommended) Luminous Deep releases." "So it occurred to me, why not send my two pieces for Complex Silence 32 to Thomas and invite him to work his Mystified magic on them? Why not indeed." "And so it was...

Jack Hertz returns to the Complex Silence Series with a deeply meditative and spacious soundscape.Complex Silence 34 is a study of a slow-moving life form that could be the mascot for everything that exemplifies ambient music. It occupies a patient space all its own in a deep universe without any consideration of time and Hertz captures this essence perfectly.Jack writes: "...this album was inspired by the starfish that populate the Pacific coast where I live...

[audio]Tange- Complex Silence 17 [treetrunk 160] - Tange
The Complex Silence series welcomes once more the talented ambient artist Tange with a dual-track release. Track one focuses on the mysterious spaciousness of Tibetan bowls and track two is a signature Tange ambient musical journey. Both tracks are generously long-form, with enough time to evolve and let you truly soak in the richness and depth of the aural atmospheres Tange creates. Complex Silence is indeed privileged to release this beautiful ambient work by an artist who continues to grow an...

Daniel Barbiero offers an excursion into the possibilities of the prepared double bass as Complex Silence 37. Daniel sent along these notes about his release:"I have often suspected, that there may be in the Air some yet more latent Qualities or Powers differing enough from all these, and principally due to the Substantial Parts or Ingredients, whereof it consists.--Robert Boyle, Suspicions about the Hidden Realities of the Air (1674)"As with air, so with sound...

[audio]Jack Hertz- Complex Silence 25 [treetrunk 222] - Jack Hertz
Even if you've only been paying slight attention to the world of netlabel ambient music, podcasts, radio, and artists the past few months, the name Jack Hertz has probably crossed your reading and listening paths. Jack approached me and Thomas in the early part of 2012 with an idea for the Complex Silence Series that we listened to and liked, but didn't feel fit the CS concept exactly right. I encouraged Jack to try again, thinking that I might hear back from him a few months later...

[audio]Crystal Dreams- Complex Silence 19 [treetrunk 170] - Crystal Dreams
One of the exciting aspects of curating a netlabel series is watching new artists emerge into the small, but talent-rich world of ambient music. Joel Sutton, to my knowledge, has not been releasing ambient music for long. Yet, the ambient world has embraced his work and warmly welcomed him. It was just mid-2010 when I first started noticing his podcasts, followed on by his debut release, Iceberg and then in 2011, Flood...

[audio]Various Artists- Complex Silence 33 [treetrunk 262] - Various Artists
Complex Series 33 comes in the guise of a long-form mix created by Phillip Wilkerson, and it’s an interesting coincidence that it features various artists who all have participated in the 3 minutes and 33 seconds Project (curated by Le Berger). The 3m33s Project is described as an “organically evolving compilation of drones all the same length.” Drone music has a signature sound that we tend to recognize and can even describe in words, but it also has a subjective “feel” –an immediat...
